Zumasys team members are obsessed with efficiency, and we love helping customers use technology to unlock the full potential in their businesses. We design the world’s most adaptable software for a variety of vertical markets including distribution, manufacturing, retail, and higher education. We draw upon our rich history as former owners of databases, connectivity, and productivity tools to modernize applications and unlock their full potential. Zumasys also employs a services team of business analysts and developers who help customers enhance their critical business applications.
In 1981, Raiders of the Lost Ark hit the box office, Microsoft released MS-DOS, Post-It Notes were blowing everyone’s minds, and future Zumasys founder and CEO Paul Giobbi, age 11, started his career in a family business. The company ran on a ADDS/NCR minicomputer, one of the early Pick system licensees. Paul immediately realized the power of the Pick MultiValue data model and became immersed in the unique community surrounding it.
Fast-forward to Orange County, CA in September 2000 Paul co-founded Zumasys with his late business partner Joe Cupp, a pioneer in the database community. Initially Zumasys began as a hardware reseller but quickly grew into a vibrant, fast-growth technology company with nearly $30M in revenue.
With their history, the duo saw a unique value proposition around hosting business-critical applications. Riding the early wave of cloud computing, Zumasys expanded its focus to host applications of all types, running on a wide variety of databases including SQL, Oracle, Progress and more. The common theme – these applications were the lifeblood of the businesses who relied on them.
Zumasys ultimately sold its cloud and IT infrastructure business to NexusTek in 2018, retaining its software assets AccuTerm, jBASE and OpenQM.
In 2019, Zumasys began acquiring Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), helping them enhance their vertical market applications and moving them to a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business model.
In October of 2021, Zumasys sold its databases and tools to Rocket Software, a global technology leader of enterprise software with 2,500+ employees
Today Zumasys focuses exclusively on developing vertical application software and accounting systems. We protect the decades of investment that our customers have in their applications and we help to prepare them for the future.
Even though technology changes, our mission remains the same.
